Travelling by bus

Taking the bus is the most affordable option. It is also very easy. 🙂

Departing from Malaga

Buses from Málaga to El Burgo depart from the central bus station Maria Zambrano (in Malaga city). See google maps down below. 🙂

Transfer airport – bus station

There are frequent buses and trains running between the airport and the bus station. It only takes about 10-15 minutes, but keep in mind waiting and transfer times. You can find the transfer buses and trains right outside of the arrival hall.

El Burgo Bus Station

In El Burgo it is hard to miss the one and only bus stop, located next to the round about and opposite to the gas station. Ask the bus driver to drop you there (notify you when there), or try to localize the other participants likely to be on the same bus with you :).

We really like staying in Malaga for a couple of days. If you are looking for a nice places to eat, we have had good experiences with Brunchit. For staying the night we really like the quiet and cozy Villa Alicia (around 45 euros per night). Although this is by no means all that Malaga has to offer!

Other places we can recommend for an extended trip are Grazalema for its beautiful mountains and nature. City wise we really love: Granada, Sevilla and Cordoba.
